Lovely area of Amsterdam, buzzing, vibrant, with plenty to do, just outside Centraal, but with not quite the madness, loads of nice restaurants on the side streets.

Always worth a visit for the vibrant bars and night life. Plenty of places to sit and have a drink and watch the world go by. Can get a bit loud when Ajax are at home as they have it on the televisions, but all a good laugh. Lots of restaurants off the side streets. Recommended.

Loved it! So many bars and restaurants in one square (and beyond). All of the bars have outdoor seating with heat lamps and blankets so it was pretty awesome to have cocktails al fresco in the dead of winter.
